Court of Appeals Decisions

Peavey v. Holder, No. 09-5389, 2010 WL 3155823 (D.C. Cir. Aug. 9, 2010) (per curiam). The court grants agencies' motion for summary affirmance where "[a]ppellant has not demonstrated that any agency 'improperly withheld' a record within its possession" and "the district court correctly concluded that the agencies conducted searches reasonably calculated to uncover all relevant documents."

Lewis v. DOJ, No. 09-5225, 2010 U.S. App. LEXIS 7367 (D.C. Cir. Apr. 7, 2010) (per curiam) (unpublished disposition).  Defendant's motion for summary affirmance is granted.  "The district court properly determined that [one of plaintiff's requests] was beyond the scope of the litigation.  Construing appellant's complaint liberally, the complaint does not adequately notify the government that appellant sought to litigate [that request] in the district court, and appellant failed to move to amend his complaint." 

Roman v. NSA, No. 09-0623, 2009 WL 4350179 (2d Cir. Dec. 3, 2009) (unpublished disposition) (summary order).  The district court's ruling granting summary judgment to NSA is affirmed.
